      Underneath it all who are you really?
      Actors is comic book about what we keep hidden, what we show, how we would like to be seen, and the systems that are fuelled by these concepts. It makes you think about the masks we all wear. 

And it's all set in a mind-bending meta-reality too.  

I have made 14 Kickstarter campaigns and all of them were successfully funded and fulfilled. This will follow the same model. All the work is already complete and the basic funds will cover the printing and postage costs.

and - UPDATE! - this awesome Actors review/preview piece by Antony Esmond https://neverironanything.blogspot.com/2019/07/actors-by-stuart-j-mccune-now-on.html?zx=267a90e49a963db3

Below you can find covers, variants, pages, prints, and t shirt designs all of which are available in the rewards. If there is anything else you would like to know please get in touch.
      Thanks,

First some unlettered interior artwork for you - (don't worry, it's all already lettered)

 The Border Lord t-shirt 

 You can get this in both female and male sizes and fittings. The first tee package on the reward tiers is for those who just want the tee alone and as a free bonus it also comes with a digital collection for you. The packages with the tee thereafter include versions of the printed book plus the signed and numbered print,bookplate, and digital too.

Below - Border Lord design and wearing it :) 

The first of three limited edition variants below is the THB variant cover. The second is the Canvas 2. The third, (not pictured), will be a version of the original cover without the painting and in it's place will be a hand drawn ink sketch of a character from the book. All of the variants are strictly limited to 20, 10, & 5 respectively - (plus 5 additional ones for myself & the higher tiers). They will not be reprinted. This will be the only place to get them. All variants come signed and numbered with the Art Print, Bookplate, and a Digital PDF too.

STRETCH GOALS ADDED!

If we make it to £1000 everybody gets this - a physical print of it for physical backers and wallpaper for digital backers.

Then if we manage to get to £1200 everyone will receive a digital copy of the mini comic Midnight. If we can get the funds a little higher to £1500 all physical backers will get an A5 reprint copy of the book. 

If we can push for this it would be unbelievably fantastic not only because the funds would be enough to get you the extra comic free but also because I'd genuinely love you to have it. It was the first physical book made for my subscribers last year and it connects many of my other books together too.

Risks and challenges

I have made 14 Kickstarter campaigns and all of them were successfully funded and fulfilled. This will follow the same model. All the work is already complete and the basic funds will cover the printing and postage costs. Dispatch is September but hopefully many will arrive earlier - probably late August if there are no postage or printer hiccups.
